Even before entering PRINCESS GRACE the level of custom work is very apparent. The owner has invested a huge amount of time and money improving the standard Hatteras 70’ Hatteras main deck and outside spaces.
Entry to the yacht would be into the port or starboard doors from a fixed dock or onto the swim platform from a floating dock. Assuming the latter, the wide swim platform offers easy access. Up a custom ladder to the expanded Aft Deck seating area with extended sun shade and into the Salon.
Immediately to port is an L shaped sofa, a large cushioned ottoman/table and a chaise lounge. To starboard is a fixed bench seat followed by a large cabinet with the entertainment center, a popup TV, wine cooler and icemaker. Next forward behind a custom stainless steel railing are steps to the Master Cabin, Office and Engine Room.
To port is a single pedestal table with six chairs.
Next forward is the highly customized open Galley with barstools facing forward, all new modern appliances and a dinette to starboard.
Further forward behind a hinged door is the fully functional Pilothouse with the seating, a centerline helm and port and starboard sliding wing doors.
Going below is an over under cabin forward with a private head and shower. Next aft and to amidship twin lower berth cabin with a head and shower. Going aft is the VIP with a walk around queen berth and a private head and shower.
The Master, Office and Engine Room are reached from the private access in the Salon.
The Engine Room entrance is forward from the base of the stairs. Next aft is a functional Office followed by the Master Cabin. The Master Cabin has a centerline king size berth, ample drawers, a vanity and a walk in hanging locker. A private head with a tub/shower is to starboard.
The Flybridge is accessed from a custom stainless steel stairway in the Pilothouse. The helm is centerline. A custom bar with grill is to port.
The U shaped seats aft have been modified to have a walk between seating to access the Boat Deck which has a crane but also a hot tub instead of a tender.
The Salon is entered from the aft end via a hinged door to starboard from the Aft Deck.
Immediately to port is an off white L shaped sectional sofa. Lying in front of the sofa is a large upholstered ottoman.
Next forward is a small end table that also serves the brown leather chaise lounge which faces the entertainment center to starboard.
Furthest forward to port is a single wood pedestal dining table with a Silestone solid surface top and six Lucite and stainless steel dining chairs.
To starboard starting aft is a bench seat with storage below followed by a long custom cabinet housing the dry bar and entertainment systems.
Starting aft is a Sony multi disc CD/DVD player, a Sony AV receiver and an iPod music connection all behind a wood door. Next forward are two cabinets with three shelves within, containing all the yacht’s bar and glassware.
Behind these two cabinets is a popup 46” LED TV that when retracted disappears from view. The next cabinet forward houses a Sub Zero “clear ice” icemaker. Furthest forward is a Sub Zero two zone wine cooler. The countertop for the entire cabinet is a Silestone solid surface smooth white finish to match that of the Galley and elsewhere within the boat. Next forward is a custom stainless steel railing around the steps to the Owner’s Cabin, Office and Engine Room.
The Salon has a carpeted sole, large side opening windows covered with shades, an aft window, four stereo speakers, blue LED accent lights behind the wood valance boards, halogen track lighting, port and starboard and digital AC controls.
Perhaps the most dramatic change is PRINCESS GRACE from when she was built is the new open Galley arrangement similar to that of a 75’ Hatteras. The transformation orchestrated by her restauranteur owner is both functional and breathtaking!
Starting aft on the back side aft of a wide Silestone solid surface countertop are three white and stainless bar stools facing forward. In front of the stools below the countertop facing aft are four large storage cabinets with adjustable shelves.
Outboard above the countertop are two corner cabinets with curved doors offering additional storage.
On the wide countertop separating the Salon and Galley is a four burner Wolf Induction ceran top cook top with stainless steel trim.
Above the cook top is a soffit area incorporating a heavy duty Galley exhaust fan and five halogen mini spots set into a stainless steel overhead. This soffit cleverly is used for AC delivery as Hatteras originally designed when this area was a dividing wall between the Galley and the Salon.
Below the cook top is a full size Wolf Induction stainless steel built in oven.
Outboard under the opening side window is a deep under mount stainless steel sink with a commercial type articulating faucet. The backsplash of this area is mosaic tile marble.
Forward in the Galley is a four door Leibherr refrigerator/freezer behind wood panel doors that virtually make this appliance disappear. A Wolf Induction stainless steel trimmed microwave is adjacent.
Also in the Galley are an abundance of drawers and cabinets, overhead lighting and a new planked laminate sole that continues forward to the dinette and Pilothouse area.
Next forward to starboard behind partial bulkhead is a C shaped dinette in white leather with two storage drawers and additional storage below the cushions. In front is a white Silestone solid surface table top on twin pedestals. Above are stereo speakers, high intensity lighting and an opening house side window with a roll down shade.

A widely known shortcoming of the 70’ Hatteras FB MY is her unusually small Aft Deck. Two chairs and a table and it’s full! During his ownership this owner added a cantilever seat to fit six people comfortable plus a ladder from the custom enlarged swim platform to the Boat Deck. It’s all tied together in a beautifully executed stainless steel work of art!

PRINCESS GRACE is a rare find in today’s market. Her present owner bought her in 2009 as a very nice boat just improved for her new owner who passed away suddenly.
The present owner transformed the main deck and Flybridge area to be much more modern and appealing. His transformation of the Galley into an open area part of the Salon much later model Hatteras motoryachts but with a more modern and functional twist.
His restauranteur background shows and should help make this clean 70’ Hatteras stand well above her peers.
